Thank you. Uhm, the photos are not good enough. ;) Well, the keyboard moutings are a pain. A first try to glue a piece of plasic to hold a screw was not strong enough. It first bent and then just fell off. :(
Yesterday I went to a body painter. I am not sure that he really understood what I want. I visit him again, when the case is ready to be painted... Maybe I can give him a spare plastic part to test the painting first...

Again a few photos. I have done a few mountings. It seems that the skrews for fixating the keyboard are strong enough now. The mounting holes are accurate enough except for the S-Video connector. This hole should have been rised a few mils. The two LEDs at the upper left corner of the keyboard are the power- and HD-LED.
Some minor details still have to be done but I am very optimistic to get the case finished soon.

Happy New Year everyone! :)

Well, the case is ready to be painted. I will visit the body painter this week again. :)
Here are some detailed photos of the mountings for the CF-card, the 2.5" hard disk and the 3.5" floppy drive.

The case-tinkering continues... Today I got the major parts back from the bodypainter. The result is pretty good. Only a few "noses". I'll ask him if it makes sense to clean these parts. Here are the corresponding pictures. :)

Today I went to the body painter again - my friend... :D I gave him the main body again. Maybe I am a bit too fussy but I like to see a better result. :roll:
In return I picked up the upper shell. Woooow, it looks fantastic. :mrgreen: Photos come later when the labeling has been done...
